Garden Wishes Sympathy Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments they have a color challenge of Calypso Coral, Bumblebee and Just Jade.  I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend and decided to use the colors in the challenge and use a technique I had not used in awhile.  I created the watercolor background by coloring an acrylic block with Bumblebee and Just Jade markers then spritzing the block with water and stamping it onto Shimmery White card stock.  I then dried the ink with my heat tool.  I then stamped the flowers from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set and sentiment with Stazon Jet Black.  The sentiment is from the retired Thoughts an Prayers stamp set.  I then colored the center of the flowers with a Calypso Coral marker then die cut the dragonflies with the Dragonflies punch.  Love this punch because you can punch a large and small dragonfly.  The larger dragonfly coordinates with stamps from the stamp set.  The smaller one is meant to be used as a silhouette.  I die cut the small dragonflies from Bumblebee then colored with Wink of Stella.  It’s difficult to see the Shimmer on the Shimmer White paper and the dragonflies in the photo.  I also added rhinestones for extra shine.
